Track Name: Set Sail
I'm here for the day; but you probably won't see me 'cause I'll be stoned sleeping it away.
I'm here for the night; but you probably won't see me 'cause I'll be off drinking in the dark.

Don't give me away, it ain't none of your concern.

I ain't got nothin' good to say.
Lord, won't you take these words away?
My train of thought has been derailed.
So when you don't come back around, I'll know that ship set sail.

Now I'm drinking in the dark; full of cheap beer and whisky I think I'm just 'bout ready for the stage.
One more drink can't hurt? I need one more shot of confidence so I can spew more non-sense through the night.

Don't give me away, it ain't none of your concern.

I ain't got nothin' good to say.
Lord, won't you take these words away?
My train of thought has been derailed.
So when you don't come back around, I'll know that ship set sail.
Track Name: Home
I'm gonna get away where I can't be found,
So I can feel at home.

'cause I feel most at home; sitting on a stone; contemplate a while; carry on for miles.
Track Name: Rope
I'm on the run again, but I don't seem to mind anymore.
I'm bringing all I got, but don't take my word for it.
I've jumped the gun again, and I'm not the only one whose gonna pay.
Like a dog I've been told, guess I'll sit here 'til they let me back inside.

I keep on holding on, I keep on holding on as if I'd always had a grip.
And this rope is like a match, every time I try and pull it I risk setting it on fire.

I've jumped the gun again, but I don't seem to mind anymore.
I'm bringing all I got, but don't take my word for it; yet.

I keep on holding on, I keep on holding on as if I'd always had a grip.
And this rope is like a match, every time I try and pull it I risk setting it on fire.

Scurry home, let it go. Don't let your feelings known.

I keep on holding on, I keep on holding on as if I'd always had a grip.
And this rope is like a match, every time I try and pull it I risk setting it on fire.
Track Name: Try
Hold me close, don't let go.
Bitterness consumes my soul.
'Gotta keep it civil, keep composed.
Sometimes it all seems a little overwhelming.

If I go to far, won't you help me try?
If I go to far, won't you help me try?
'Cause I've been asking too long for you to set things right.
And now I've gone too far, won't you help me try?

The doors are closed, don't come home.
Bitterness consumed my soul.
'Gotta keep it moving, it's all I know.
Sometimes it all seems a little overwhelming.

If I go to far, won't you help me try?
If I go to far, won't you help me try?
'Cause I've been asking too long for you to set things right.
And now I've gone too far, won't you help me try?
